A Powerful Course I Wish I Took Sooner…

I have worked with Lola on numerous occasions as my Business Coach and when she mentioned her new course, I was more than interested. Little did I know, I would be engaging in something so life changing...

Highly suggest this course to anyone and everyone looking for Emotional Empowerment with Friends, Family, and in the work place. Officially been out of the class for 3 days and have repaired several relationships! Will be using these tools for the rest of my life. Thanks again Lola!

Groundbreaking Course

The EmC Certification will change the way you think about office interaction. Lola has such a passion for helping people achieve connection and it shines through her interaction with participants and the coursework. I would recommend this course for anyone who is looking to create more meaning connections at work and at home. There is no way to avoid bringing emotion into the workplace and with the tools learned in this course, employers and employees will be better equipped to handle everyday interactions with ease.

Superior and groundbreaking!

This course is superior, groundbreaking. What Dr. Gershfeld has put together finally gets to the root of conflict resolution. We are emotional beings and we need to matter to those we work with and depend on. We need to connect and this course teaches us how to connect and create connectedness in our working teams and relationships.

Very interesting and action-oriented!

This course was very eye-opening and validating that emotions do matter - in your life and business. Bravo! This training was very interesting and action-oriented! It is a valuable resource to have in your tool-box. We went in-depth and practiced situations that have occurred in our employment, and now we have a way to resolve the problem of a disconnect. We know how to get out of the negative cycle.

Putting the human back in humans.

Mastering Emotional Connection puts the human back into humans! This seems like a long lost art that I wish I would have learned in school. The strength that showing emotion is a sign of weakness is trumped by mastering emotional connection. Dr. Gershfeld is so impressive, with her fully integrated program content and her individualized connection with everyone starting with the very first encounter. Life changing sums up this program!

An emotional tour de force!

This training crystalized the essence of what motivates human behavior - emotional connection! To effectively manage change in an organization, it is necessary to understand the "why's" - how to fix a broken cycle and reconnect with those important to us. It has already changed my work AND home life.

A wonderful journey.

From beginning to end, the content was interactive and created many Aha moments. This process can be used in any situation where dependency and attachment are important, it will be valuable through work and home settings.

No idea going in. Very excited going out.

I wasn't entirely sure what to expect from this course. After 3 days of interactive content, I am convinced that it can and will work as a leadership tool, whether with a family, a peer group, or anybody we want a connection too. I'm very excited to use and practice the process I learned in this course. I believe it will make a huge difference in my own life as well as my ability to be a leader, now and in the future.

Powerful and transformational!

Nothing like experiencing how this process works firsthand. The exercises are designed to really provide step-by-step guidance to "feel your way into the process" and experience some extraordinary and sustainable results. Applicable to so many "disconnected" situations, it is a must-have tool in every coach's toolbox.

Simply amazing.

Never before have three days been so rewarding. The training is very engaging allowing for so much information to be learned. To see the concepts put into action and really work is incredible. I feel I am a better person and will make a difference by using the knowledge gained.

A unique perspective on boardroom interactions.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the two days I spent in the workshop this week. Amazing people, interesting ideas. Highly recommend anyone who deals with boardroom culture.



An excellent way to learn about emotional connection.

The Level Five Executive emotional training course is all about practical ways to connect with your colleagues (It's also incredibly useful for applying to non-work situations). Bottom line - if you are having issues with a boss, peer or report, this is the course for you. It teaches how to think about where the relationship soured. Pinpointing the triggers and then repairing ht e damage to make the relationship work for both or all of you. The presenter/facilitator Dr Lola Gershfeld is excellent as instructor and guide in both lecture format and practical role-playing exercises. The discussion between students on the program is also excellent.

A solid roadmap to building emotional bonds.

I really enjoyed and benefited from this course. Dr. Lola Gershfeld is a very knowledgeable instructor who is passionate about the subject of Emotional Connection. This course was eye-opening and provided a solid road map to building emotional bonds, which are vital in improving and maintaining trusting and healthy working relationships among individuals/teams. Lectures are full of examples rooted in scientific research and interactive with all class members participating. Highly recommended and valuable to any organization!

This is a breakthrough approach.

This is a breakthrough approach to attaining balance and productivity. We are wired for connection!!! We all need to remember that no one is to blame except the negative cycle. I look forward to more practice with EmC so it becomes second nature.

A foundation team and leadership training.

After learning this approach, I now see this as a foundation team training and leadership training. The benefit of training groups and leaders to use this approach is that everyone knows how to prevent and reverse destructive emotions and toxic interactions from taking over.

Susan Forster


The course would change the world completely.

The course breaks down the science of how we get into these negative cycles and how we can break free, how we can reconnect and as a result live happier and healthier lives. Every single person should have the opportunity to take a course like this one. It would change the world completely.

Candace Pearson

A remarkable three days

I was fully engaged from the first moment to the last. The EmC process is something everyone can use to improve and impact relationships, personal and professional. It was a remarkable three days I will always use moving forward.

A masterpiece for organizations

This training is a masterpiece for organizations. The blend of great research on emotional connection and its impact on team dynamics and organizational effectiveness is groundbreaking.

A transformative experience

This course was one of those defining moments in my life that has helped me grow personally and professionally. From the beginning of the course, it grabbed my attention with stories and examples of how emotional disconnection can lead to negative cycles. With catchy phrases and numerous exercises along with tools and techniques, the instructor turned an analytical and logical person like me into an empathetic and emotionally attuned person. It was a transformative experience and now I'm comfortable with my emotions as well as others around me. I now know how to cope and even thrive in an environment surrounded with left-brained people.

Paul Kang, PMP, CISSP

This program was so enlightening

This program was so enlightening for me. Understanding how to empower people with the language of emotion to move them from a negative state emotion to one of connection and safety is a game changer. I am excited to bring this back to my work team, relationships and family.
